Institute-Industry Partnership Programme


The recent advancement in science and technology has led to the crumbling of the traditional geo-cultural barrier and the whole world has been transformed into a single global market. This is a challenging situation for the developing countries like Pakistan who have to ensure for survival that their industries and production systems are globally competitive.

Pakistan is yet to respond adequately to this challenge and has to gear up to cope with the situation. One major input in this respect can be a close liaison between industry and the pool of expertise in our universities and research organizations. The Institute has taken the initial steps in this direction by establishing the partnership program.

Under the program the Institute invites industry to participate at various membership levels. The membership provides flexible and tailored access to students, faculty, research, publications, seminars, workshops, and conferences. Corporate Liaison Program is designated to serve as the firm's personal representative ensuring that the interactions between the member firm and Institute are as productive as possible. Recruiting assistance is provided to member firms in addition to computerized database of undergraduate and graduate students seeking permanent, summer, or co-operative job opportunities. Graduate fellowships are also available for support. The liaison provides campus-wide visibility and access to resources of the GIK Institute.

Continuing Education Programme


The last few decades have witnessed a vertiginous pace of advancement in almost all fields of science and technology. The galloping technological advancements have created a host of socio-cultural dislocations and prominent amongst them is the rapid obsolescence of the know-how of technologists and engineers. What they had learnt at schools or universities becomes antiquated within years of the commencement of their practical careers. It poses new challenges for technical universities and creates new role for them.

The Institute has responded to this need and established a Continuing Education Program for the purpose. Under this program a faculty committee is assigned the task of surveying national industries for identification of their need for updating of technical personnel, and to apprise them of the expertise available at the Institute. The program was inaugurated in summer 1995 with intensive short courses for engineers and managers from industries. The Institute is now offering intensive courses on a number of subjects to managers, supervisors and engineers from public and private sector industries and organizations.
